Birthday Card

Good Morning!  I hope everyone had a great weekend. 

Today I'd like to share a simple birthday card I made for my niece Donna.  It is a 5 x 7 inch card made out of Recollections cream cardstock.  The layer on top is a beautiful floral from K and Company cut at 4 3/4 x 6 3/4.  The center medallion was cut using the largest of the Nestabilities Floral Ovals.  The ribbons (pink ribbon is layered over lacy cream ribbon) are from the $1.00 bins at Michaels and the pearls are by Recollections.  The Happy Birthday! stamp is from Close To My Heart and I stamped it using their Cotton Candy ink.

I hope you liked my card.  I'd love to hear what you think. This card has been Linked Up on the Pink Cricut Tuesday Link Up Party.

Mini Album

Happy Monday Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend.  Today I'd like to finally share pictures of the mini album I created for a swap I participated in.  Warning:  There are a lot of pictures.

So here we go:  This is the cover and the first inside page.  The matting for the first page is a Cricut cut I tweaked a bit with my Gypsy.

Next are two pages with an undercut page in between.  The undercut page houses a pull out tag that opens.  It can hold 4 pictures.  I added a cute key charm to the ribbon pull.  On the second side of the undercut page is a short pocket that holds two additional small tags.

Here is pocket page that holds a large tag. The mats on these two pages were again cut using my Cricut.

This is the next page which has a short vertical pocket holding two more tags.

These next two pictures show another page with an undercut page.  I've used a short pocket to add small tags.  In the second picture you can see another a pull out tag for 4 more photos with a crystal bead and charm dangle attached to the ribbon pull. The large mat on the left was cut using a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch.

This next photo is the other side of the undercut page and a large pocket page with a tag.

And here are the last two pages of the album. The mat on the final page is another Cricut cut that I altered with my Gypsy.

I hope my "Swap Buddy" will like this album.  I enjoyed making it and I hope you enjoyed seeing it.

This has been "Linked Up" on the Pink Cricut Link Up Party.

Some more cards

Good morning!

Today I have two more cards to share.  They are simple note cards that will be sent to a girl at camp from her Mom.  She likes cats, so I made two cards with a cat theme.

This first one was made using the Paisley Cricut cartridge.  The cat and all her parts were cut at 3 3/4 inches.  The white oval was cut using Nestabilities Floral Ovals. All the cardstock used is from Recollections.
(This card has been linked up on Pinkcricut.com)

The second one was made using a DCWV pre-made card as a base.  Then I took a piece of paper from the their Pets Stack and tied it with some black cording. I cut the cording to make it look like whiskers. 

That's all for today.  Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Paula

Hello Everyone,

Today I'd like to share a few cards.  I was asked to create some note cards for a Mom to send to her daughter who is away at camp. 

The first one is a shaped card.  I used Nestabilities Lattice Rectangles to cut the card.  The paper is from the DCWV French Country Stack with a Recollections white rose.

The second one is made using the DCWV Crafty Stack. The spool of thread and mini tape measure embellishments are by Jolee's and I printed the sentiment on the computer.  I added some faux stitching.

I also have a sneak peek at the mini album I mentioned in my last post.

Here is the cover.  I just love the way it came out.

I hope you enjoyed my latest projects.  I'd love to hear what you think.
